Diane Kruger and Norman Reedus Are Having a Baby

-It looks like the rumours were true. Us Weekly is reporting that Diane Kruger is expecting her first child with The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus.

-It’s a big day for Norman. He reportedly negotiated a huge pay raise ($20 million) to stay on The Walking Dead as news surfaced that Andrew Lincoln is leaving the show after season 9.

-Holy crap, did I NOT expect ABC to cancel Roseanne today. Yes, what she tweeted this morning was horrible, but she often tweets horrible things. There’s a lot of speculation that there’s more to this story and it wasn’t an out-of-nowhere decision by the network. Whitney Cummings quit as co-showrunner earlier this month, ratings weren’t as strong as when it debuted, and despite being the show ABC touted the strongest to advertisers at the upfronts, they had to be worried that an ignorant comment from Roseanne Barr in the future would spark an advertiser boycott a la Laura Ingraham‘s show. I mean, *something* else besides a terrible tweet had to be at play and in the works. ABC knew exactly who they were getting into bed with when they launched the show, and allowed a whole bunch of crap to go down before now, including the show’s Fresh Off The Boat/Blackish slam, and it’s fairy tale season finale. That being said, it’s still huge that they pulled the trigger. It was TV’s #1-rated and most watched comedy, prime time’s #3 program overall, and the ratings had stabilized. This means that ABC is going into the fall season without their biggest show, without Shonda Rhimes, and maybe without Black-ish creator Kenya Barris. That’s gotta hurt.

-The reaction to Roseanne’s cancellation was swift, with her talent agency dropping her, Paramount Network, TV Land, and CMT all pulling Roseanne from their respective schedules as of tomorrow,  ABC scrubbing all traces of the show from its press site, and in Canada CTV immediately pulling it from all its platforms.

-ABC is having a day! Bachelorette’s frontrunner Garrett Yrigoyen is under fire for liking social media posts that mock immigrants and the trans community.

Lili Reinhart says she isn’t pregnant with Cole Sprouse’s baby — she just took a bad photo. This is why bump watch is *the worst*.

-In her new Harpers Bazaar interview, Jenna Dewan reflects on the end of her marriage to Channing Tatum: “We’re just getting used to it. We’re in a very positive energy together, trying to be the best parents to Everly. We support each other.”

-Morgan Freeman’s lawyer is demanding CNN retract their sexual harassment story. How can he do this? He already apologized. Plus, there is VIDEO of him hitting on reporters at junkets. “You got a dress that’s halfway between your knee and your p-hips, and you sit down right across from me, and you cross your legs.”

Elle Fanning posting funny pics of Angelina Jolie on the Malificent 2 set is what we all need.

Uma Thurman is the latest movie star to head to the small screen. She’s headline Netflix’s new supernatural series Chambers.

-This piece on TMZ’s shift to pro-Trump media is fascinating.

Justin Theroux is vacationing in France with Spiderman: Homecoming actress Laura Harrier.

Diane Kruger and Norman Reedus Are Still a Thing

-Well, this is hardly surprising. Diane Kruger and Norman Reedus were spotted kissing in NYC.

-When Ryan Reynolds and Stephen Colbert stare at the stars, they can answer life’s biggest questions.

-I could watch Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal interviews all day long. This one is hilarious. So is this one! Can we get a sitcom, please?

Jake was in a much better mood with Ryan than he was with this Guardian interviewer.

George Clooney just met his biggest fan. Really? Huh. I don’t remember meeting him.

-This is a pretty frank interview with Lewis Tan, who was on hold to play the lead in Iron Fist before he was offered the role of a one-off villain. He was treated horribly, but it sounds like he dodged a bullet.

-Just when you thought the press around Iron Fist couldn’t possibly get worse, the original creator offers this bon mot: “Don’t these people have something better to do than to worry about the fact that Iron Fist isn’t Oriental, or whatever word? I know Oriental isn’t the right word now, either.”

-Meanwhile, I hate how people are mocking this 35-second Iron Fist fight scene because it has 56 cuts. That doesn’t seem like the editor’s fault. It seems like the poor guy got the footage and tried his best to salvage it.

Ashley Olsen has reportedly broken up with her 58-year-old “financier” boyfriend.

Allison Williams as a blonde is alarming.

-Sorry bros, Jessica Chastain will not let you mansplain to her on Twitter.

-I don’t watch MST3K, but the trailer for the reboot makes me think maybe I should.

-Both Variety and The Wall Street Journal published in-depth, data-driven reports this week about how the cable sector is killing off struggling niche networks.  We knew this last year, but this year we have charts!

-My friend Karen and I get together every week to hang out and watch old shows, usually Angel, Buffy, Firefly or The X Files. Coincidentally, all of those are leaving Netflix April 1.

-Jesus. A judge has rejected Kesha’s latest effort to void her record contract and suggested Dr. Luke‘s abuse was “foreseeable.”

Lindsay Lohan wants to steal your phone for her new prank show. Sure.

-The musical episode of The Flash was so charming and cute, it was easy to overlook the many plotholes. (Y’all need to simmer down with this talk that it was better than Buffy’s, though.) Despite all the buzz about it, it somehow didn’t manage to move the ratings needle.

-The first full-length Fargo season 3 trailer has arrived.

-Goddamnit if just hearing the music in this Love Actually reunion trailer didn’t make me a little emotional. I’m glad it’s airing on NBC; I thought for sure we’d have to wrestle with geo-blocking to watch this thign.

Beyonce’s Having Twins and 2017 Is Suddenly Looking Up!

-Leave it to Beyonce to save our souls. This might be the best birth announcement in the history of ever. The pose! The forest nymph theme! The veil! Even more incredibly, it made Twitter a happy place again. She works miracles.

-In other multiple birth news, Pharrell Williams and his wife welcomed triplets.

Johnny Depp‘s ex-managers have fired back with a countersuit, alleging that actor’s extravagant spending is the real cause of his money problems. They claim he spends $30,000 a month on wine and dropped over $3 million to blast the ashes of author Hunter S Thompson from a specially made cannon.

Drake, Kanye West and Justin Bieber are all skipping the Grammys.

Salma Hayek claims her words to Jessica Williams were somehow taken out of context and she wasn’t being dismissive — even though Williams has said she felt like she was being dismissed. Which means she’s immediately gone on the defensive instead of trying to understand and learn and amplify other voices, which is what intersectional feminism is built on. Swell.

-City of Rumours? Miles Teller says reports that he lost the La La Land role because he was “too demanding” are “alternative facts.”

Norman Reedus and Andrew Lincoln just admitted that they didn’t much care for the first half of The Walking Dead’s current season either.

-Aww nuts. The initial reviews for Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet are not good. They range from “slow start” to “a gory waste of Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant.”

-On the plus side, Ryan Murphy‘s Feud is getting good reviews, as is FX’s new show Legion.

Denis Villeneuve is officially set to direct the Dune reboot. Yay, I guess?

-This oral history of Crash’s Oscar win is actually pretty good. Michael Pena remembers not being a big enough star to get invited to the ceremony, while Brendan Fraser says he was shooting a film in Mexico with Sarah Michelle Gellar and she got him a mariachi band to celebrate.

-Every time an Oscar voter explains their thought process, I wonder how anything good ever manages to gets nominated.

Melissa McCarthy‘s new Super Bowl ad features her getting attacked by a giant whale which is literally MY WORST NIGHTMARE.

-There’s the first trailer for Claws, a new TV show produced by Rashida Jones. I’m digging the premise.
